KARACHI: Quetta Gladiators spinner Fawad Ahmed’s comeback for finals may be in the cards after he receives a gum surgery.

The Pakistan-born Australian cricketer is to undergo a gum surgery after he was smashed in the face following a returning straight drive from Iman-ul-Haq during a Qualifier against Peshawar Zalmi on Wednesday.

Quetta defeated Peshawar by 10 runs in the Qualifier round of PSL 4 on Wednesday, thereby qualifying for the finals on March 17.

Gladiators are expecting Fawad to recover in time for the final once he undergoes a new tooth implant. However, the decision will be on the franchise’s management.

“..Fawad is to undergo gum surgery around his front teeth. He lost his tooth last night (new tooth being implanted). @TeamQuetta is confident that he will play the final on March 17,” ESPNcricinfo’s Umar Farooq Kalson tweeted earlier today.
